Yamaha BB1025X in Black – Blending simplicity, great craftsmanship and intelligent design, Yamaha bring you an all-round fantastic 5 string bass guitar that is great value for money.
5 String Bass Guitar Combining Jazz Bass and P-Bass Pickups
The pickups for the BB1025X were designed by Yamaha specifically for the Yamaha BB Series of bass guitars and they combine the strengths of a Jazz bass and a Precision bass resulting in a one great, versatile bass guitar.
A pickup selector switch allows you to switch between three configurations. In the first position, there is the Precision Bass pickup which is a split blade pickup using Alnico V magnets. With this set up you get the great, classic tone p-bass players will be fond of.
Having the selector switch in the middle position combines the precision pickups with the rear, jazz pickup which is a single blade ceramic pickup – this combination gives an awesome ‘scooped’ sound for a nice, clean all-round sound.
Lastly, the third position will give you the jazz bass pickup on its own which gives you a nice, biting sound that is perfect for funk playing.
The Body of the Yamaha BB1025X features a spline joint and is made from Alder with bolt-on construction seeing the joining of a Maple and Mahogany neck.
It is a 5-piece neck that is quarter sawn which gives it a great solid feeling; makes it less likely to bow and aids in transferring vibration into the body of the guitar.
A Nickel Silver nut gives the sound of this bass a slightly brighter quality that adds to its bite, giving you a snappier, lively sounding performance.
Simplicity with Extra Touches
The Yamaha BB1025X is identical to the BB1025 in specs and design, however the BB1025X comes with an awesome-looking plastic and metal pickguard.
On the back of the Yamaha BB-1025X bass you’ll find a string through body design that has the strings entering at a diagonal, 45-degree angle.
This, seemingly simple, design choice adds a great deal extra sustain to your bass sound and is a feature that Yamaha are pioneering in their basses.
To give you control over your sound you will find simple Master Volume and Master Tone dials so you can focus more on your playing while getting the results you desire quickly and easily.
Coming with its own gigbag included, the BB1025X Yamaha bass guitar is a great quality, great sounding bass that is just fun to play and is great value for money.
